5 1/4 c. hearty oats (steel cut or old fashioned, don't use quick oats)
2- 14 oz. cans coconut mik (I like use light coconut milk)
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Combine all the ingredients and store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator overnight. (It will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week) In the morning, you will find that the oats will have absorbed most of the liquid, but that’s ok because the oats will have the right amount of texture and bite. Scoop out the desired amount into a bowl, and add any kind of milk (dairy, nut or coconut milk from a carton) until you get the consistency you want. Stir well.
Here is where you customize it to your taste. Below are some ideas for you, but the possibilities are limitless!
PB2 powder- mix this in when you add the milk (after it sat overnight)
A nice dollop of any kind of nut butter
Cocoa Nibs (my favorite)
Fruit (Fresh persimmons are my absolute favorite on these oats. I just wish they were in season year round! Dried fruit works well too. My hubby loves dried figs in his bowl)
Honey or agave nectar
A dollop of jam
A hearty and healthy breakfast never looked and tasted so good!
